Boston used BMW owners are able to try the EVolve app. This is an electric vehicle simulator app that allows divers to get a sense of what it would be like to own and drive an EV with regard to range. The EVolve app can be downloaded for free from iTunes and is compatible with iPhone and Android phone users.
Boston used BMW owners start the app when they get into their gas fueled vehicle. The app will start at a maximum range of 100 miles. The app keeps track of how far you drive through GPS and uses this information to adjust range on the simulator. Drivers can then know if an electric vehicle will suit their needs by providing enough range between charges.
At your destination, the app is paused and will simulate recharging when you select “Get Charged” or just be in park mode when you select “Park your EV”. It will keep track of your information and then provide you with your stats at the end of the day. The app tells you how far you traveled, how long you spent driving, how much time you recharged the battery, and how long you were just parked.
BMW has an “Activate the Future” website that EVolve app users can access to determine the possible fuel savings of driving an electric vehicle in place of a fuel-based car. App users can also see the positive impact they would have on the environment when utilizing an electric vehicle instead of a gas-fueled one. App users can decide whether or not to send their personal usage data to BMW for analysis to help with the development of electric vehicles.
